“Great Place for Gelato!”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

Relatively new gelateria in the town center area of Monterosso, up the hill a bit from the beach on Via Roma. The gelato is always very fresh, always made from fresh ingredients available locally, not frozen or canned stuff. The establishment is very clean, very well maintained, and I found the staff to be very friendly. I have tried about 6-7 gelaterias in Monterosso, and have found this to be the best!

“Yummo gelato!”
Reviewed 23 April 2013 via mobile

Went there today after a 2.5 trek, so we deserved gelato :) I liked that you could get 3 flavours in a medium cup for €2.5, I had chocolate, caffe and hazelnut and my husband got pannacotta. All very nice and smooth. Service was ok, didn't like the no free tastings sign. I think that is in bad taste. Anyway, worth going for some tasty gelato!!

“Nothing to Rave About”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

Not very friendly and it was not the best gelato I had. Read the reviews and went there and the guy was just serving the gelato....no smile and seemed grumpy.

“Unfortunate”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

This place smelled like a massive sewage issue was going on. We specifically visited since they got tons of high ratings, but the fuss was majorly overrated. Maybe it's because it was the start of the season, maybe it's under new ownership, but this was a big disappointment. They also had a sign in the glass case stating "no tasting!" Just strange.

The best gelato we had in Monterosso was in the New Town at Slush! along the main road.

If you stop here, hopefully you'll get the same experience so many others wrote about instead of one similar to ours.
